## Main Question or Discussion Point

A long time ago, someone told me that Einstein thought spacetime is "smooth and continuous."

Quantum mechanics is a proven fact. Quantum mechanics exists in spacetime, though.

So can we at least conclude that spacetime is not continuous, and instead discrete? ...quanta of space and time?

Without a discrete foundation (spacetime) for particles and energy to exist within, how can we have quantum mechanics?

Thanks,

Jake
